Abstract

In this paper we introduce the idea of enhancing the audio presentation of a multimedia museum guide by using the Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) screen to travel throughout a fresco and identify the various details in it. During the presentation, a sequence of pictures is synchronised with the audio commentary and the transitions between the pictures are planned according to cinematic techniques. Preliminary studies and pilot tests show encouraging results and interesting effects. The use of cinematic techniques in the audio guide seems to help users better understand and localize the fresco’s details, while the localisation mechanism employed in the museum allowed them to quickly identify the panel of the fresco referred to in the audio
